Microsoft testing Windows 10 without passwords

Microsoft testing Windows 10 without passwords

When the Windows 10 S becomes official, there will be no default requirement for passwords during installation setup of the operating system.

Thurrott spotted that several inbox Windows 10 apps now have the option to preview new features, even if the user isn't part of the Insider Program. It is now available for users in the Fast ring and the ones running Windows 10S.

"With the Authenticator app on your mobile device, you can authorise or block any request, and Microsoft says that passwords would be removed completely from the operating system", stated the report.

"Windows 10 S PC will automatically make your experience password-free". After this, you will no longer need the password to use the operating system.

Users can apply to test these pieces of software on a per-app basis, although there may be limited numbers of testers taken on board.

Microsoft plans to make passwords obsolete starting off with the Windows 10 S, the next beta release version of which will not require the aging security tool anymore.

Instead of remembering password, users mostly leave the door open for hackers to abuse.

As per Microsoft, the technology will help users in getting results that are more accurate and natural while surfing the internet across any website on the Microsoft Edge browser, on Bing search and Bing Translator website. Microsoft says it will have more to share on this new "app preview" feature soon, so stay tuned for that.
